Wales seal victory with late kick in Six Nations thriller against Ireland

Ireland didn't deserve to either win or loose. Should have been able to close it out. Wales were stronger, dominated first 20 mins especially.

Linesman should be cited for BD tackle.

Ferris left one leg on the ground therefore it wasn't a tip tackle - Wayne Barnes you moron! And isnt the tip tackle also about failing to place the player safely - that was a reasonably safe put down. (But Uldterlads need to learn from Leinster and Munster - never give the ref the opportunity to make a vital mistake that could cost u the game. Paddy Wallace 2009 against Wales anyone?!?!)

Check out the tommy bowe juggle before the ball went out, which led directly to a try for Wales. The ball DOES NOT TOUCH THE GROUND. Seriously. It bounces from Bowe to the, wait for it, cameraman's camera. This leads directly to a Wales' try. Doesn't the ball have to hit the ground to be used again directly?

BOD badly missed by Ireland - small but so powerful in the tackle and at the breakdown.

Downey should be brought in for a trial/go, O Mahony from squad to full team, Ryan instead of O Callaghan - all prob for the match after France (based on Kidney's conservatism)

Those big Welsh lads have a lot of momentum behind them - good luck to them.

Samu Manoa and Mike Haywood crunching tackles vs Harlequins

does it cut both ways Buzz? Northampton are well into it, but are flattering to deceive atm. CF HC final last yr and against Munster this year.

Ultra hyping after a single tackle, swan dives, loads of tattoos, celeb girlfriends and lifestyles....its all a bit ott. Thou of course the hit bit can be good for adrenalin etc.

There is sth v superior about hammering someone and not even getting animated about it...

Classic Encounters - Montpellier vs Racing Metro on New Year's Eve

incredible stuff, so fast and accurate (esp for 15 min clip) weather looked v good too, which probably helped.

Somehow, that was almost like league...is supposed to be! I'm sure in reality there was plenty of trad forward play, but it seemed v league like....

Luke McAlister's big charge through Nick Evans in the Heineken Cup

i suppose after all the nascewa-hipkiss comments, this is bound to be seen as a yellow and shoulder charge? I can see why ppl complain that some of these front on collisions are harmless enough when compared to spears etc....

as an aside, those anglo-saxon surnames ain't half sidewayz on occasion (hipkiss to twelvetress....)

Stephen Ferris scores a powerful try against the Scarlets

@besthookertown: The irish provinces are starting to bring people through now in the 2nd and back rows, tfb. Its up to the international team to start playing them.
@huh - has SOB been tried at 8 ? Or is it just that you reckon his style would suit it?

Alesana Tuilagi and Tom Wood red carded following touchline brawl

From the rfu link above:
"Ashton, 24, was found guilty of pulling Alesana Tuilagi by his hair and dragging him from the field of play .....The Saints wing, who denied the offence...."
denied the offence? He was accused of x and he _denied_ doing it?!?
That's a bit silly, and probably added to his ban. (read rest of info at link before u start going on about the rules btw...)

Stephen Ferris scores a powerful try against the Scarlets

immaturity finds many ways stubby, but there's always hope!

Well taken score, great to see that mobility and strength - bad ball to start with!

Pity both himself and Sean O Brien cover 6 eh?

Alesana Tuilagi and Tom Wood red carded following touchline brawl

perhaps understandably, Tuilagi does immediately go for ashton. He tries to punch him, succeeds with the first one (punch into ribs, stomach area), mostly fails with the second, and after that its a melee. Tuiligi's intention to lay into Ashton is a serious part of it from the ref's perspective. he obviously just wanted to teach players a lesson, and didn't think yellow would do it. Maybe he was right in this regard? However Ashton did get away scott free, which is a pity - petty move on his part.
